May Privacy Lab - Privacy for Safety
Privacy for Safety explores where and why so many apps and tech products fail in protecting privacy for end users from targeted groups. As we often fail to see what is not relevant to ourselves, our speaker will use affairs/cheating (think Ashley Madison) as a relatable and humorous context. She will examine how societal 'normalized" behavior and bias affects design, development and incident response, exploring why this happens and how we can improve. While it is a big problem, the solutions are actually very simple and effective.
Stella, our speaker's career has spanned school teacher, private training, event planning, inclusion training and now privacy and security. Her freelance work involves advising companies on creating inclusion programs that work, while also working directly with targeted groups, to advise on privacy and security online. Inspiration for her talks comes from a professional life filled with people confiding in her, while she tries to find secure and discreet ways to resolve their problems. She notes that she would make an excellent spy.
Please RSVP only if you do plan to attend in person. A light dinner will be served, sponsored by HackerOne, so we'd like to get an accurate catering count.
